The following curriculums are used in our child care program: 

*Everyday Mathematics which includes problem solving in everyday situations, uses hands-on activities, practices content (numbers, operations, data, geometry, patterns, functions, etc.).
*Growing, Growing Strong a whole health curriculum that teachers use to assist children in learning a healthy lifestyle.
*LANA (Learning About Nutrition Through Activities) with the goal of helping young children learn to taste, eat and enjoy more fruits and vegetables in order to promote good health.
*High Scope where active learning is its core component, but it also encompasses assessment, adult-child interaction, daily routine, and learning environment.
*MN Project Learning Tree (Nature) which connects children to nature and helps them develop a knowledge base about natural resources and develop their own sense of stewardship.
*The Letter People and Develop Inspire Grow (DIG) which is a thematic integrated instruction centered around science, social studies, daily math concepts, and a meaningful literacy program incorporating oral development and 26 hands on letter people puppets.

We implement Conscious Discipline in our classrooms. Conscious Discipline is a leader in impactful social and emotional learning (SEL). It is based on four essential components scientifically and practically designed for success: The Conscious Discipline Brain State Model, Seven Powers for Conscious Adults, Creating a School Family, and Seven Skills of Discipline. 

We also implement RedRover Readers, mostly as a camp or special event, which is another social and emotional learning (SEL) program.

Weekly lesson plans include music, Spanish, and technology.

 

We use a parent communication platform called Procare Connect. Teachers and administration use this to communicate with parents through an app parents download to their phone, tablet, or computer. Parents also sign their children in & out using the app.
